A report on the water resources available in the Middle Illinois River water supply planning region is now available (Kelly et al. ISWS Contract Report 2018-02). The Middle Illinois region includes seven counties – LaSalle, Livingston, Marshall, Peoria, Putnam, Stark, and Woodford – and several major cities including Peoria, LaSalle-Peru, Ottawa Pontiac, and Streator. The report is the product of water supply planning research carried out by the Illinois State Water and Geological Surveys in the Prairie Research Institute with funding from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
